The people blessed all the men who willingly offered themselves to dwell in Jerusalem.
Young's Literal Translation
and the people give a blessing to all the men who are offering themselves willingly to dwell in Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 11:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All the men that willingly offered - Some volunteered their services, which was considered a sacrifice to patriotism at that time, as Jerusalem afforded very few advantages, and was a place of considerable danger; hence the people spoke well of them, and no doubt prayed for God's blessing upon them.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
"Lydda was a village, not yielding to a city in greatness." Concerning its situation, and distance from Jerusalem, the Misna hath these words: "The vineyard of four years" (that is, the fruit of a vineyard now of four years' growth; for, for the first three years, they were trees, as it were, not circumcised) "was brought to Jerusalem, in the space of a day's journey on every side. Now these were the bounds of it; Elath on the south; Acrabatta on the north; Lydda on the west; and Jordan on the east." …
John Lightfoot—From the Talmud and Hebraica
My heart is with Israel's princes, with the willing volunteers among the people. Praise the LORD!
Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning's womb.
